Leah Kate writes pop/rock anthems that cut to the bone. Pairing booming, radio-ready choruses with poignant, hyper-specific details, her songs are intimate and razor-sharp—the sort of tracks that resonate with listeners around the world. With the success of the snarky breakup song “10 Things I Hate About You,” the Los Angeles native is realizing her childhood dreams of pop stardom by reaching deep within and sharing relatable feelings alongside addictive melodies. It’s a sound she has perfected on her irreverent-yet-emotional new EP, Alive and Unwell. Confessional and confident, this new EP finds Leah Kate digging deep yet again, embodying both the brash swagger and the raw vulnerability of the rock greats who preceded her. Moments like the title track show off just how real she’s willing to get. “I’m alive and unwell, some days I fucking hate myself,” she sings on the latter track over careening guitars. “No magic pill is gonna help.” It’s heavy, but that’s the point. Her breakout “10 Things I Hate About You” also makes an appearance, and that track too was the result of her cracking open tough situations in her life. Writing these songs is deeply cathartic. “I really needed to get over a guy who had been f***ing with my head for the longest time,” Kate says of her breakthrough hit. “At one point I decided to list everything I hated about him to help me move the f*** on.”
BEAUTY SCHOOL DROPOUT
Beauty School Dropout is a Los Angeles based rock band composed of Colie Hutzler, Beepus, and Bardo.
Meet this generation's Motley Crue meets Red Hot Chili Peppers. Resurrecting heavy guitar tones, charging drums, and sticky melodies, all while still staying true to the relatable and timeless emotional lyrics we all love. Their debut album, “We Made Plans And God Laughed” released last year, garnered over 14 million streams and featured an amazing list of collaborative efforts including the feature of Mark Hoppus in “Almost Famous”. The creation of the album has had the band working with hit-making writers and producers, Andrew Goldstein, Alex Gaskarth, Inverness, Slush Puppy, Ryan Follese, Nash Overstreet, and Dan Book.
2023 has the band hitting the ground running! From performing at their first official Grammy event, releasing new music, and a touring schedule that includes a 36-date US tour with JXDN, an 11-date stint opening for blink-182 in arenas like Madison Square Garden, followed by a European tour with Maggie Lindemann and Stand Atlantic, as well as a crushing summer festival run, Beauty School Dropout shows no signs of slowing down. Not to mention the follow-up album to We Made Plans and God Laughed, will drop in Q3 of 2023.
Honey Revenge, consisting of Devin Papadol (vocals) and Donovan Lloyd (guitar), are a pop-rock band creating buzz out of Los Angeles, CA. The band has roots in the DIY community, and are rapidly growing with the help of their loyal fanbase. They've taken the music scene by storm with their recent singles "Worst Apology," “Airhead” and the massive track "Habitual" -- “'Habitual' is a fun, dancey reflection of my own negative attitude. Sometimes it’s important to acknowledge how much your mindset can affect your mental health and overall quality of life.” Says Devin Papadol regarding the song. Other singles include “Rerun” and "Distracted" which paint a world of hook-driven verses that ooze a distinct, refreshing sound. The tracks are draped in melodies and rock-influenced riffs that make Honey Revenge a deadly-sweet but threatening treat. Honey Revenge has been featured on playlists like Spotify "Fresh Finds" and Apple Music's "New In Rock" and press coverage from idobi radio, MTV, Rock Sound, Kerrang, and State Of The Scene Podcast. They've continued to build their stage presence on their first national tour supporting The Home Team last Spring, and have previously shared the stage with acts such as Loveless, Rain City Drive and State Champs. Honey Revenge has prepared a hive worthy of the approaching swarm with their debut record Retrovision, out now via Thriller records.
